Important Message from Foscam Digital Technologies Regarding US Sales & Service

We, Foscam.US (aka Foscam Digital Technologies and now Amcrest Technologies), are an independent United States based distributor of "Foscam" branded products. We have been offering telephone support, US local warranty and building the Foscam brand in the US for the past 7 years. However, we are deeply saddened to report that, even after all of this, our overseas suppliers have decided to undercut us and supply to our major customers directly. For this reason, we have no choice but to suspend telephone support for all Foscam branded products. If you have purchased a Foscam camera directly from us or from one of our authorized retailers, technical support is still available via email at

For customers who have not purchased from us directly, we advise you to please contact Foscam Shenzhen or the distributor which you have purchased from. In the meantime, we have launched our own new brand of IP cameras called Amcrest, which has superior quality products and full telephone technical support 7 days per week. We hope you can support us in our new venture. For more information, please visit

How to set GMX email service

Postby smartalex » Wed Aug 10, 2011 4:19 pm

There are too many threads on how to set the email service. I thought I wrote this to save everyone trouble.

Foscam FI8918W (Black) will not work with Yahoo, Google emails because they dont support TLS/STARTTLS. As far as I know, you have to subsribe to the paid service to be able to use it.

So I signed up a account. No TLS authentication needed. Here's how I set it:

Receiver 1:
Receiver 2:
Receiver 3:
Receiver 4:
SMTP Server:
SMTP Port: 25
Transport Layer Security: None
Need Authentication: [checked]
SMTP User:
SMTP Pass: xxxxxx
Report Internet IP by Mail: [checked]


Good luck.

With firmware and UI GMX needs SMTP Port 587 for my FI8910W. Port 25 has stopped working.
